FOOL ME ONCE RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW




Title: Fool Me Once
Author: Nikki Ash
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: March 5, 2020

Blurb

I met Keegan when I was on the beach in Florida.
He literally crashed into my world.
I wasn’t looking for romance, but his two-dimpled charm made my heart go haywire.

We both had one thing in common: we were here to escape our realities.
One week. Just the two of us. Not a care in the world.
I didn’t know it at the time, but that week would forever change my life.

Four years later, and as fate would have it, Keegan and I are brought together again.
It’s as if the universe is telling us this is our second chance.
The more I get to know him, the harder I fall.
Falling hopelessly in love is inevitable with a man like him.

Only the joke’s on me, because the guy I’m falling for isn’t the man I thought he was.
You know how the saying goes: Fool me once…
I’ll be damned if I’m fooled again.

My Review

Swoon Y’all! I seriously Swooned, my heart fluttered. Every.Single.Time. Keegan was near my heart just melted people.  Blakely tried and failed to resist his charms. He was just so mouthwateringly perfect and she’d been through so much but she was beautiful, tough and sweet. GAH! I loved these two.😍 He was the distraction she needed, something good for her,  for once. He changed her life that week, her sisters life in ways they never could have predicted, but it was for the better. 

The precious secret baby, second chance romance will grab you from page one and not let you go till the very end. It’s full of unexpected twists and turns. Lots of sweet and sexy moments, as well as laugh out loud moments. Get ready to fall in love with 

Keegan, Blakely, Zane and the rest of the crew in this amazing story.  Told in dual POV with a perfectly Heart melting HEA you don’t miss this must read by Nikki Ash. 

My Cr8zysockbookblock  blog wrap up : 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐1/2-  I’m a sucker for a good second chance romance. Throw in a secret baby and I’m a goner, y’all! This was so good! I’m claiming Keegan as my current book boyfriend. I mean how sexy is his name right?!  This couple was just magic together and I flew through their story. 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG! They are hotter than a beach 🏖 in Florida in the middle of summer! Yeah! That hot, my friends! 🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- NO CLIFFHANGER! I love this kind of HEA folks! 😍♥️😍






Excerpt

Just as I’m turning the page in my book, someone yells, “Watch out!” Unsure of where the voice is coming from, I look to the left and then to the right, but before I can grasp what’s happening, the circular object hits my hand, and my book flies out of my grasp and into the water.
“Shit! I’m so sorry.” A half-naked guy comes running over, sand kicking up around him as his strong legs pound into the ground. The closer he gets, the more of him I’m able to see, and holy shit, do I like what I see. Messy brown hair I could picture running my fingers through, tanned, smooth skin I would enjoy kissing and licking, and if I’m feeling frisky, biting.
My eyes rake over his tattooed, sculpted chest and down to his abs. Two-four-sex… I mean six. God damn! Look at that six-pack. He must work out, probably several times a day. Damn, I’d love for him to work me out…
As he jogs over, his corded arm muscles flex, making it appear as if the ink on his arms is coming alive, and I briefly imagine holding on to those arms while he fucks me good and hard. He runs past me, and I follow his every move. When he bends over, I check out his butt that’s hidden under his low-hanging board shorts as I fantasize about my legs wrapped around his waist and my heels digging into that butt…
But then he turns around, and in his hands is the now sopping wet copy of Wuthering Heights, and I instantly snap out of my lust-filled thoughts.
“Here you go,” he says sheepishly, the soaking wet book dangling from his fingers. Drops of saltwater fall down and land on my knee. My eyes meet his, and just as I’m about to snap at him, the corner of his mouth lifts into a nervous smile, and a single dimple pops out on his cheek, and once again, I’m momentarily distracted by just how good-looking he is.
“Thanks so much.” My reply drips with sarcasm. Taking the book from him, I examine the saturated, ruined pages, and mumble, “At least it wasn’t my mom’s copy.”
“I’m Keegan.” His half-smile turns into a cocky grin. Oh, hell, no…
“I’m not interested.” 
He throws his head back with the most beautiful laugh I’ve ever heard. It’s raspy and deep and sexy. My eyes land on his Adam’s apple, and my tongue darts out, wanting to lick down his throat.
“Fair enough.” He nods. “I really am sorry about the book.” His gorgeous forest green eyes meet mine. “Can I do something to make it up to you?”
“Like sleep with me?” I give him a playful smirk. I haven’t slept with many guys, but I’ve had a couple one-night stands over the last few years. My way of lashing out over my mom’s death.
“No.” He shakes his head. “We’ve already established you’re not interested. Although, I think, based on the way you were eye-fucking me on my way over here, I could probably convince you otherwise.”

Blurb:
There’s a rule in Crowne Hall: never look a Crowne in the eyes.
It protects us more than them.

I broke it once, the night Grayson Crowne mistook me for his true love and stole my first kiss. I’ve regretted it every day since.

He hates me.
He torments me.

He won’t let me go, because that night he whispered a secret against my lips not meant for me. Grayson Crowne, heir to the Crowne empire and notorious playboy prince is… a virgin.

I signed a contract in my heart’s blood as much as ink: help him get back his love, repair what I broke. Give him my body, my soul, my heart, let him use all of me, so when the time comes to marry her, he won’t need me.

I shouldn’t need him.
But he’s my stolen soulmate, and I’m at his mercy.

 

 

About the Author:
I started writing the moment I could read. My first characters were Wibbley and Squig and I used MS Word and clipart to bring them to life when I was a kid in elementary school. I started seriously thinking about being a writer in High School and I remember the day exactly, because it was such an epiphany. I was always so uncertain. You know how everyone was always asking what you wanted to be when you were older? Well I NEVER could decide.

I wanted to be a marine biologist.

An actor.

A FIRE FIGHTER (thank you Joaquin Phoenix in Ladder 49 for that phase).

One day it hit me—A WRITER. I could do it ALL. Then you couldn’t stop me from writing. I penned my first novel at fifteen (but don’t ask me to show it to you, because it’s like I was in competition to beat the thesaurus). When I was diagnosed with a chronic illness, writing became even more important, because it became my therapy. When I wrote my characters, suddenly I wasn’t so alone.

These days you can find me daydreaming about where to travel with my husband, singing in my car, or lost in the newest K drama. And planning my next novel, of course

Resurrection Release Blitz

Resurrection - RB banner

“Resurrection was the ultimate page-turner. I am addicted to Siobhan Davis’ writing. Deliciously dark, I never wanted it to end.”–Parker S. Hunting, USA Today bestselling author

Resurrection_ecover

A new dark romance from the USA Today bestselling author of the Rydeville Elite series.

Everything changed the night my dad died.

The night I met Saint, Galen, Caz, and Theo.

Those manipulative a-holes set out to ruin me after our hot night together, but they didn’t realize you can’t destroy something that’s already broken. And it only works if the victim cares.

Which I don’t.

Because I’ve been in hell for years, and nothing penetrates the steel walls I’ve erected.

Until The Sainthood decides I belong to them and cracks appear in my veneer. Their cruel games, harsh words, and rough touch awakens something inside me, and now, I’m in trouble.

They draw me deeper into their dangerous world, until I’m in the middle of all the violence and gang warfare, tangled up in all the secrets and lies, and there’s no turning back.

Because they own me.

And nothing has ever felt so right.

I’m exactly where I should be.

But with enemies on all sides, survival becomes a deadly game with no guarantees.

And, sometimes, saints become sinners.

Due to mature content, this book is recommended to readers aged eighteen and over. This is a full-length reverse harem dark romance novel with enemies-to-lovers/bullying themes. Cannot be read as a standalone and ends with a cliffhanger. Book 1 of 3.

Madness Release Blitz & Review

Title: Madness
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: Kailee Reese Samuels
Genre: Dark Romance/Reverse Harem
Release Date: December 17, 2019
As a starry-eyed child, I wanted to believe my shining prince would ride up on a white horse, present a diamond ring, and carry me away to his castle. His love would be endless and our lives would be the happily ever after all girls dreamed about. I never knew the fairytale was nothing more than a lie.
I was a good girl.
Until one night, one tiny trip, one little mistake, one moment of indiscretion. 
When I fell down the rabbit hole, I stumbled into the absolute fantasy, succumbing to their whims and rituals. As their very naughty girl, I embraced the nightmare and refused to ever leave.
The Darkland is mine. 
And those monsters will kneel before their one true Queen.

My Review

I have to say Madness is by far the most dark and insanely twisted retelling of the sinister fairy tales collection so far. At least in my opinion. This book is as its titled… Pure delicious, mind blowing Madness! This take or retelling of Alice in Wonderland will leave you simultaneously blown away as wondering exactly WTF did I just read?!?! 

This is Ellison’s story. She is nothing short of insane. She’s the driver of the crazy train y’all. She started off the book with her insanity and I was like “oh damn,  well we going right to crazy town on the first page, okay, okay.” 
Now IRL Alice and Wonderland isn’t even a fairytale I care for,  But I can definitely get on board with this kinda Wonderland! I mean this is a RH (reverse harem) so it’s a sensual and hot and dirty wonderland. Hells yes! 

I don’t want to give any spoilers away so I will just say… Get ready!! Prepare to fall down a devious, dark and twisted rabbit hole of madness and mayhem. There was so much going on and it was crazy, and chaotic. It was wild and really dark. It will have everyone going just a little mad at least for a minute. I think this is definitely one of those books I could go back and read again and probably catch something I might have missed out on the first time, because there are so many characters and so much happening at one time.

I am just a fan of dark and twisted, so this is right up my alley. This sinister fairy tales collection is amazing and this is a fantastic part of it. Definitely recommend for those who love twisted tales. If RH or blood and gore offends you, then this is most definitely NOT the book for you. But if you are open minded about those things I think you will love this book! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! ⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- Totally dark and twisted retelling. Recommend for dark romance fans who also love RH!  🔥🔥🔥🔥-CRAZY RH HOTNESS! 🧨 💥 🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! 🔫Trigger Warning- This book does contain violence, blood, gore and is a Reverse Harem. If you are offended by these things this is Not the book for you!

Hidden Truths Release Blitz & Review

Titles: Hidden Truths
Hidden Truths & Stolen Lies Duet #1
Authors: K Webster and Nikki Ash
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release: November 21, 2019
My life was easy, simple, fun.
Light.
Until I got wrapped up with the wrong people.
Nothing but a piece of property to pay for the sins of my father.
I’m to be married off to a handsome monster.
I see his truths every day, and it’s hard not to fall for the enemy.
He won’t let me escape, but I’m not sure I want to.
I wanted to marry for love, but it looks like love is a lie.

“A deliciously-seductive, dark, suspenseful and sexy tale that hooked me from page one, and didn’t let go until I had devoured it. Absolutely superb. Grab a copy right now!” Siobhan Davis, USA Today bestselling author of Cruel Intentions

Hold on to your seat and get ready as this grabs you from the beginning and won’t let you go. They pull you in and take over your body, your heart, and your mind. – Miss Petite Brunette Book Blog

This story had me from page one. I couldn’t put it down. Every time I thought I had it figured out, I’d flip the page and have a different theory. Bucket up cuz it’s a bumpy and wild ride- Nancy, reader

Dark romance suspense at its finest.-Fun Under the Covers Blog

FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC! Hidden Truths was a pager turner that kept me on the edge of my seat and wanting more. -Kristina, reader

The first in the duet, the story is captivating. There’s so much angst, drama, and suspense I literally couldn’t put it down. – Shirley, reader

Both Nikki Ash and K Webster are just amazing individually. But when they collab together, it’s just a match perfectly made.- Viridiana, Amazon reader

My Review

For the love of all things holy!!! OMG! I need a moment… Well, actually, I need… like a few days to recover from the emotional beat down K. Webster and Nikki Ash just served my ass with in this book.

Let’s just start with this gorgeous cover. Now, it’s amazing right?! Hands down one of the most beautiful covers ever!! It absolutely is the complete embodiment of exactly what I imagined our beautiful Talia to look like. Just absolute perfection! 

From the blurb you know she is to be married off to a man she doesn’t love, against her wishes. To pay for bad deeds done by her own father. As one would expect this vibrant, fun, sassy girl is devastated at the level of betrayal at the hands of her own father. In addition to being yanked away from her home and her family, she has become a captive in a gorgeous and glamorous world full of monied monsters, and she’s to marry one of the one of the cruelest and most powerful. She finds solace in an unlikely ally. 

The Demetriou brothers Kostas and Aris are both beyond handsome, where one is ruthless, cruel and devious the other is flirty, playful and sensitive. The relationship with their father is also night and day. They appear somewhat competitive with each other. But they both love their mother beyond measure. They are opposite in almost every way. 

What I love so much about this book was that so many times I felt like these amazingly talented authors swooped right in and pulled the rug right out from under my fanny and left me in a shocked pile on the floor going WTH just happened?!?! Holy shadooby I didn’t see that coming!! It was freakin awesome! 

This book was chapter after chapter of these kind of jaw-droppin, knock ya over moments too, y’all! I finally gave up trying to predict what was gonna happen and just buckled up and enjoyed the hell out of this rollercoaster. I am on the edge waiting for the next book, going to go ahead and just throw that out there right now! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐⭐⭐⭐️⭐⭐️-  👈🏻 Y’all see that extra star I threw in!! #FIVEAINTENOUGH Yeah, it’s that good! So much in this book. I’m not gonna give you anything either! Just READ IT! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG!! The level of hotness in this book. Is so far off the charts! Napalm in the bedroom y’all! 🧨 Boom💥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- CLIFFHANGER OF ALL CLIFFYS BE PREPARED TO WANT TO THROW YOUR KINDLE!

MY REVIEW

There is definitely something to be said about a book that makes you laugh out loud to the point that you pee yourself am right? Anyone else do that?…No, just me? Um… okay well this is a bit awkward. Lol  

Seriously this book is freakin HILARIOUS!! Like one of my Top reads of 2019, because it’s just so amazingly funny and quirky and out there. 

When outrageously hot Con man Luca is forced to kidnap the beautiful innocent and sheltered Francis in order to save his family, he had no idea what was in store for him. This kooky but gorgeous girl and her sidekick Chandler Bing the chihuahua introduce him to a crazy side of conning he never knew. Next thing the captive has become the partner in crime.

Throw in a little Richard Simmons’s and then they are sweatin’ to the oldies and right outta their clothes. Getting down dirty right in each other’s arms right there on the yellow brick road and in the back of the mystery machine. How scandalous!! And when I say getting down a dirty, Y’ALL!! For such a hilarious book, these ladies brought the steam. It was so hot! Then they had scenes where it was hot and hilarious. I’m mean this book was killing me. In the best way. Death by laughing. I was holding my stomach going “it hurts” lol 

Join Luca, nutty as a fruit cake Frannie, and Bingie Boo on a crazy cross country adventure as they race against time and mobsters. Cross a few items off their bucket list, fall-in-love, meet an outlandish cast of characters, including a herd of goats with voyeuristic tendencies, a neighbor with a slightly weird relationship with his cat. Did I mention the most awesome Chihuahua in the history of Chihuahuas? Bing Daddy, Prince Bingy himself, The Bingster!! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐⭐⭐️⭐⭐️- EVERYTHING!! This book was everything! Hilarious, hot, some suspense, sexy, funny characters, Pervy goats. Chandler Bing the Chihuahua King!! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Luca and Frannie are HOTTER than the seventh circle of Hell. Even in the funny times…Still hot. 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No Cliffy, but I’m hoping we end up with Vincent and Lindsay’s story. #WEWANTPAPPADEATH

Sacrifice Release Blitz & Review

Title: Sacrifice
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: N. Isabelle Blanco
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: November 12, 2019
Releasing as part of the 2019 Sinister Fairy Tales Collection and part of the Dark Paranormal Ryze Series, but can be read as a Standalone!
Megara
We all know the story.
How it ended.
He survived and conquered each task.
Became the hero of all heroes.
And in the end he became a legend.
What no one told you is that I was there. I was helping him . . . and when he ascended, I was left behind to rot.
Herakles never knew I sold my soul for his success—he didn’t need to. Had I been enough on my own, he would’ve chosen to stay.
Instead, he rose to full glory.
I was dragged straight to Hades.
Beaten.
Violated.
Broken.
Eventually, mutated.
I lost track of him for nearly three millennia, but I’ve found him.
I will kill him.
He chose to become a god; I was forced to become a nightmare.
Now it’s time for us to meet again.
Herakles
I abandoned my family mere moments before the Greek pantheon fell.
‘Till this day the whispers accuse me.
Had I been there, perhaps they could’ve been saved.
But I no longer gave a fuck.
Funny how vanity can blind a male to what really matters.
It took less than a year on Olympus before I began searching for her again.
I never found her.
Now, two-in-a-half-thousand years later, here I am.
Alone.
Empty.
An immortal ghost, simply getting by.
I should’ve never left her.
The only thing I had was hoping the last of her mortal days, wherever she ended up, were happy . . .
Joke’s on me.
A darkened, twisted version of my female returns, demanding my head for every one of my sins.
And she shall have it.
But first, I’m saving her from her curse.
I’ll sacrifice every ounce of my sanity left to free her . . . right before I let her end me once and for all.

My Review

Wow! I am so glad I took a chance on this book. While Greek/Roman Mythology books are not usually my thing. I mean, I remember a little from back in school(which was a minute ago), but  this isn’t quite the story I remember. Lol

 N. Isabelle Blanco has definitely put a more dark and twisted spin on the story of Hercules and Megara. 

In this story we are told of Herakles “Kles” and Megara “Meg” and their incredibly complicated relationship. They have this long, twisted, dark and painful history that spans several millennia. Sacrifice and suffering is how they have spent their time apart. Suffering in totally different ways, but both suffered and made many sacrifices, nonetheless. What Meg had to endure was gut-wrenching. It left her bitter and out for revenge. My heart was broken for her. But my heart also broke for Kles, his longing and searching. His suffering with guilt. 

I love the strength Meg had. She is one amazingly Bad Ass chick, and I love that Kles wasn’t going to give up his chance to make things right when he had his opportunity. Then when they were working together you just know they were made for one another!! They are perfect together, and so freakin hot!  

There were quite a lot of secondary characters thrown in and that almost got a little confusing at times, but I think it’s just because it’s been a while for me with Greek Mythology and it’s not totally my jam. But I still really enjoyed the book. If you like the mythology stuff definitely check this book out! It’s really good. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐⭐️⭐⭐️- Great retelling of a Greek/Roman Mythology. If you are a fan you will love this!! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥- Meg and Kles are super hot for each other and so are their love scenes. 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No Cliffy, but I wouldn’t mind having more of their story.

This holiday season, there’s more than gingerbread in the oven.
I was always a type-A kind of girl— and that’s exactly what got me into trouble with Sterling
Ahren.
Having a baby before thirty didn’t work out, so I took some time off to sort out my life.
Sterling’s my new landlord… and he doesn’t plan anything.

night.

My Review

Oh my goodness I loved this adorable story! Juniper “June” and the way she plots and plans out her life down to the finest detail. Lol spur of the moment hooking up with the hottie, she definitely makes no plans for anything like Sterling. He’s hot, and kinda cynical, but totally free spirited! That’s bound to be a good story right?!?!  

Juniper “June” Spearman is sister to the Spearman men you may have read about in some of Claudia’s other books. If you haven’t no big, she tells who belongs with who. Anyway, June is in her early thirties, beautiful, has a wonderful family and is a great person all around. She has built a successful business and should feel fulfilled right? She doesn’t. She wants to be a mother. After many “it’s me not you” failed relationships, she has made the decision to become a mother on her own. On a night out ,Thanksgiving-eve before she has to see her family and just a month before she begins that process to become pregnant via IVF she meets this gorgeous god of a nameless man and has the most amazing one night stand. Even though it’s out of character for her what could it hurt right? It’s not like she’s ever going to see him again. She doesn’t know his name or anything about him. And she already knows she can’t get pregnant without medical intervention so she throws caution to the wind and goes for it. BEST.NIGHT.EVER!  What will June do when she finds herself falling hard for the nameless man a month later when she meets him again? What will she and Sterling do when they find out they unknowingly made June’s biggest dream come true that night? Will June be able to make Sterling realize how much he has to offer her? 

Sterling Ahern is this hot, brilliantly talented artist. He’s Uber rich but keeps himself away from friends and family as a protective measure because of crazy fans. He never has plans to marry, settle down or have children. None of it’s in the cards for him. He doesn’t like holidays or celebrations. But after his One night with June, he finds himself suddenly rethinking everything. Things he never thought he wanted he suddenly is dreaming of as a part of his future. But with his fame comes crazy fans, is it worth the risk to the people he cares about? 

This is a fantastic sweet holiday story. The Insta-lust is great, but even better than that is we get a slow build to a great friendship and relationship after that. The dynamic between June and her family and June and Sterling is incredible. Their witty banter and delicious chemistry is off the charts hot. Don’t miss out on this one.

Excerpt

“Juniper Spearman, what the fuck are you doing here?” I hear Jackson’s voice and there’s a loud
banging on the door. “June, open up. I know you’re there, open the fucking door.”

“Who is that?” Sterling asks, gasping for breaths.

“June, I can’t stop him for too long.” I hear Alex’s voice. “Open up, Junie bee.”
I grunt. “My brothers,” I say, untangling myself from him. “Are you ready?”
Ever since we were kids, Jack has always known when I borrow his things without permission. I
knew going into his garage might trigger some camera. He has a tight security system. To top it

all, I stole his Internet connection.

But hey, I needed my equipment and a faster Internet connection. Sterling’s slows down when

we stream movies.

What’s the best way to keep myself connected while we are lounging?

I hooked up my electronics to his Internet.

It’s Jackson’s fault. The guy always brags about it being so powerful he can connect to it even if
he’s hiking a couple of miles away from his property. Well, the geek is right. I’m less than a mile

away from his home and I’ve been taking advantage of it.

He’s in the city, after all. He won’t notice until he comes back and hopefully by then, I’ll be

gone.

“I thought you had bodyguards to take care of unwanted company,” I growl, marching toward

the door.

He snorts. “I’m sure they know and that’s why they’re letting your brothers do whatever they

want—to interrupt me.”

We walk to the main door and what do we find?

Not one, but three very annoying Spearman brothers glaring at me—and Sterling.

“Juniper?” Jackson crosses his arms.

“Jackson?” I cross mine too and give him the glare. He might be taller, older, and meaner but
I’m not letting him treat me like I’m five years old. “Do I go to your house and bang on the door

at odd hours of the day? Mom will be disappointed with your manners.”
“This isn’t your house,” he corrects me. “And it’s three o’clock.”
Sterling surprises me when he says with a firm voice. “It is her house.”

We all turn to look at him. I’m totally dumbfounded by his answer.
“I like you, Spearman, but watch your tone.” He looks at my brother darkly.
“I thought we were friends, man,” Alex says with disappointment. “You’re breaking the bro-

code.”

“Seriously, June,” Jason says with a tone of disappointment and brushes some strands of my hair.

“At least fake it.”

I open my mouth to protest but stop myself. Saying I look like shit because I’ve been puking all
day is going to open the can of worms I want to keep closed for a few more weeks—months
even. Maybe I’ll have the babies and tell them about it when they turn four or eighteen.
“Not to interrupt this amusing family reunion, but it’s cold as fuck outside and she’s not wearing
a jacket,” Sterling says, pulling me into his arms. “How can I help you, gentlemen?”

“Let’s go home, June,” Jackson orders.
Sterling turns to me, his eyes soft. “Do you want to leave?”

I shake my head.

“You heard the lady. She’s with me,” Sterling barks back. “She’s also not your property to order

around.”

Butterflies fluttering and all aside, I compose myself. Because no one wants to speak with a

puddle of mush, and say, “I came with him and will leave with him.”

“Mom doesn’t know where you are,” Jackson starts nagging. “She’s freaking out because she
went to visit you and your neighbor said you’re out of town. The first thing she did was call me

because I’m responsible for you when our parents are out of town.”
“Jason.” I appeal to the one who isn’t as possessive.

“You know I love you and I support you,” he says. “But this wasn’t cool. At least text me your
whereabouts. What’s going on with you? I heard you’re selling your company.”
“You took the month off,” Alex adds. “What if I need you?”

“This is so unlike you,” Jackson says frustrated. “I get it from Jeannette but you …”
“Me what, Jackson? Just because I decided to change my life that doesn’t mean I’m a failure.
You changed yours, just like Jason did. I can’t search for my own happiness?”

He frowns and closes his mouth tight.
